I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction for a possible upgrade for my 2006 xr650l, I've put motard wheels one and would like to stiffin up the ride, it feels a little wobblely when leaning in the turns. Ive installed a lowering link, fork brace and raised the fork tubes. Any ideas would be appreciated .Thanks

Have the forks and shock set up by a competent shop. The stock spring rates and valving are hopelessly soft for SM duty.

Just for jollys, how much do you weigh without gear?

The stock fork springs are about .44 kg/mm, for your weight and intended riding something around .48-.49 would be better. For the shock, stock is 10.5 kg/mm, you need around 11.0-11.5. Also make sure someone who knows what they're doing sets up the valving.
